Yours is nice & even, while the neighbors is way uneven as though he has a low tire on one side.

Nice, glad it's doing that good a job for you. With a lawn like that, people will be asking for T times.

I need to hook up my deck, just to check it out. I know it needs a lot of work on the housing. Need to make sure the spindles work okay. May look for a belt for it and give it a shot. Thanks, Keith!

You have a picture perfect lawn and it does look like the mower ls doing a great job. Your lawn is a lot greener than the neighbors.

You guys are right. They mow so smooth and neat. I have about a acre field I mow with my 1450 and make it into a checker board. When I first started mowing it about 4 years ago, it was pretty much a hayfield. Started picking away at it with my little MTD till I blew the engine. I picked up my new to me 1450 and now it looks like a professional mowing crew does it!
